This product is great. I have use it for the past 7 years, with a lawn that slopes. Only issue I found if any is, it has to be reapplied in south NC. I apply once about 3rd week of Feb. and again when I remember in April. If not lawn look great until the effects I guess wears off. Then watch out for late May, June, and July. I will be picking crab grass by hand. When I live in OH, MI and IL I only need to apply this pre-emergent once usally end of March early April.

      Applied Scotts Crabgrass & Grassy weed Preventer in the fall and early spring. it stops the weeds and crabgrass from germinating in the spring so you can feed your lawn and not the weeds I have a lot of trouble spots in my yard of Centipede grass and have to reseed often. ( Armadillo tear it pretty bad ) I applied scotts all in one Centipede ,mulch, starter fertilizer, and grass seed. its doing very well.

          The Scotts Weed and Feed performed very poorly on weed control. Had Henbit in yard and did not kill it. Ordered Ortho product which is performing very nicely. Fertilizer portion seems to be working.

                  Despite fall and spring applications as recommend I had significant new grassy weeds in my Bermuda grass lawn before the lawn began to vigorously grow. Also, I could only find 5,000 sq. ft. bags for my 50,000 sq. ft. of lawn requiring excessive cost investment for mediocre results.

                    Don't bother using this product. You are better off spending it on weed and feed and seed. Seed bare spots and fertilize so that good healthy turf chokes out the crabgrass and other weeds that the crabgrass preemergent claims to halt. I wave used thid product for two years with no noticable decrease in the few crabgrass clumps that I have

                      Crabgrass is the first WORD on the product. However; it comes in last on performance. I have used all the products that concern crab grass. At best a minimal effect on crabgrass but does seem to kill and prevent henbit and other cold weather emergent weeks. To give this product a better review it would need to act faster. I have to admit CRABGRASS is near impossible to deal with. So I also, spot kill individual mature CG with Pure Vinegar. I still recommend it. I use a scotts drop spreader which gives me the precise amount to use. Cut your yard as short as possible if heavily infested, then spread it early morning when DEW has formed or the night before. This seems to activate on the small leaf stems and absorbe the Halts. AAA+++ no ODOR. Be safe with Kids walking recently treated areas without shoes.

                                  I used this product for the first time and did not know what to expect. I applied it to my lawn and immediately saw the amount of weeds in my lawn decrease. My lawn looked greener and it definitelymprevented new weeds from taking over my yard. I have recommended this product to all my family and friends after using it just one time.

                                        If you read a few of the very bad reviews of Scotts Halts note the dates they said they applied it.

                                        September.

                                        You can't apply this stuff for the first time in the fall and expect to have your lawn magically go crabgrass free. It takes a year or two to reign in crabgrass by people who know what they're doing. Don't expect the usual "I pay my taxes, I expect this stuff to entertain me!" people to help you.

                                        Apply for the first time in fall if you like. But crabgrass goes to seed in the spring! Fall is when the grasses are already full bloom! So a crabgrass KILLER is what you really need.

                                        In Michigan, apply Halts just after the Forsythia, but before the Lilac. Apply it again mid summer or so. And use a crabgrass killer to clean up before fall comes. Lay some Halts down before winter comes if you like, but most of it will just rain or drain away. Treat again in sprint. By the 2nd summer you'll be getting the results some people were crying about not having after two WEEKS!!

                                            I applied this Sept 21, 2015 as recommended (Fall) in Atlanta with proper amount/sq ft. My yard is full of Poa Annua this late winter. I am sorely disappointed. On careful scrutiny of your website under Poa Annua control I see a different recommendation of application in August or early September. Why was this information not supplied with the product label?! BTW, lots of your products have conflicting timing recommendations- Not very helpful to customers! Your lawn recommendations are very confusing and at times conflict with other areas of your website- again, not helpful.

                                              I applied Halts the first week of Sept for control of winter weeds. I purchased 2 bags. I might as well broadcasted weed seeds my yard is covered in winter grass and henbit and chick weed.. Dont waste your hard earned dollars on this product.

                                                  I used Halt last season and still had a considerable problem with Crabgrass. Product was easy to use, but results were less than effective.

                                                      We have a friend who work for a University lawn research facility and he told me use this product once early in the year (FEB) and then again in 6-8 weeks. He said don't use the weed & feed as your second treatment, but use it 6-8 weeks after the second treatment of Halts. Now this recommendation may only be applicable in the Virginia area as that is where he does research. So far it is working - not one sign of crabgrass yet this year. I have used this product for many years and like it very much. Now that we know the trade secret, it may be even more effective and I will like it even more! Highly recommended.

                                                                I've been using Scott's Halts for 12 years on my N. Florida lawn, where we have a year-round growing season. It is a constant battle to fight off the weeds from my neighbors weed-choked yards. This product is excellent on crab grass as I only occasionally find any in the yard, which is over an acre. It helps somewhat with winter weeds, which are a huge problem; henbit, in particular. I also spray broadleaf winter weeds, especially oxalis, so this granular product is not the only product in my arsenal, but it is essential. My lawn is a mix of Emerald Zoysia and centipede. The Zoysia can typically withstand liquid broadleaf herbicide, but centipede can't take the strength needed to have any effect on the weeds. I do not want, and will not buy, a weed & feed as I use organic matter to fertilize my lawn. Additionally, you should not be fertilizing and putting down herbicide at the same time. This is a marketing tool for people trying to save time, but the optimal application timing for each are not the same. Both Home Depot and Lowes have stopped carrying this product over the years, and I am lucky to still be able to buy online. I have a feeling, though, that Scotts will stop selling Halts at some point, and will only offer it through its weed & feed products. I don't know what I will do at that time, but it is going to be a big problem.

The side that did not contain any Scotts Halts, had much more crabgrass growing. The side treated with Halts has only a few plants growing. I re -applied Halts to only the effected crabgrass areas approximately 9 to 10 week later and it eliminated all the crabgrass. Don't make the job of getting rid of crabgrass any harder than just reading and following the direction on how to apply this product. This product works better than any other crabgrass product I tried.

                                                                                This product works. Just follow the instructions carefully the first time, and be sure to apply at the right time... usually a 2 - 3 week window that is best. Outside of that, results may vary, but only insomuch as I feel the product eliminates ALL crabgrass when applied during that window. It's still somewhat effective outside that window. Also, if you have horrible crabgrass already showing, this product will knock it down but not out... just use the spray version later in the season, and the crabgrass will have been weakened enough that the spray will work on it. Then, the next Spring, you'll really see the benefits. By my third year, I questioned if I really needed to use it anymore... but I knew better, and I so I did keep using it. But that's how well it works. At that point, your grass should start really filling in those gaps, making it harder for crabgrass to take hold. I would recommend this, and I have... just two days ago actually. Follow the full step program and you will have people coming up to you to ask about your grass. It's not rocket science. P.S. I did not click "easy to use" because the grass has to be wet, but that's how the product works... so I couldn't very well say "difficult to use" either. There's a bit more involved with this application than any of the others, having to wet the leaves first, but if you do it right you will be amazed.

Upon application, it seems to do the job, as far as preventing crabgrass, which is always a problem for me. I would say that since it is specifically targeted for crabgrass, it appears to be stronger than other products. Because of its reliability, I feel that I have put up a strong defense against crabgrass when I use it, and feel satisfied that it is doing the job intended. Thus, I do not have to worry about the condition of my grass, and I feel safe that I have used a product of high quality.

I know that this product has worked year over year for me and have seen no reason at all to try anything else.

It helps but I still get crabgrass throughout the lawn. I know this product helps with the crabgrass since one year I went with a company to apply organic fertilizer for me and my lawn was overtaken by crabgrass by August. I went back to this product ever since to help control the crabgrass. I wish it was more effective where it was applied.
